Prominent Tea Partier Says Michael Brown’s Parents Received ‘Taxpayer-Funded Abortion’


Former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party Todd Kincannon sent out a tweet Wednesday evening saying Michael Brown’s parents shouldn’t be upset because they are pro-choice Democrats and “they got a taxpayer-funded abortion.” Kincannon, whose history of making outrageous statements on Twitter led to his account being suspended last year, has relentlessly tweeted out inappropriate and offensive comments related to Brown and Ferguson. Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9th.

Currently, the community of Ferguson is on edge as a decision from the St. Louis County grand jury is expected any day now. Based on strategic leaks to local and national media sources over the past few days, most are expecting Wilson to not be indicted at all in the shooting death of Brown. Due to this expectation, many in the area are preparing for an explosion of unrest from protesters. Recently, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon visited the area and announced the formation of the Ferguson Commission that will address the issues that have occurred in the aftermath of Brown’s death.

Due to the recent media leaks that seem to corroborate Wilson’s story regarding the shooting, a number of conservatives have essentially trolled Ferguson activists and anyone else who has called for justice for Michael Brown and change in Ferguson. With a number of protests occurring nationwide Wednesday in a show of solidarity with Ferguson, Kincannon decided to push the envelope and sent out the following tweet.


I would think that no matter which way you come down on the Darren Wilson-Michael Brown debate, you’d at least have to acknowledge that this is utterly disgusting. Of course, this is just how Kincannon rolls. There’s a reason why he was suspended from Twitter in the past. In fact, the account he is using now is not his original account, but a new one he opened after the old one was shut down. Earlier this year, he called Wendy Davis a “whore” and “soulless prostitute” who should have “been aborted.”  Therefore, it was not a shock when he combined Davis and Brown together for another ‘joke.’  


Obviously, Kincannon thinks of himself as a pot-stirrer, a button-pusher, a provocateur. He’s getting a rise out of people, specifically liberals, progressives and minorities, and entertaining the Tea Party-types that lap it up. And, it would be fine to easily dismiss him as just another attention-seeking jerk who is just saying outrageous things for the sake of saying them. He’s even claimed in the past that is all he is doing. However, this man actually led a state’s Republican Party. Of course, the South Carolina GOP wants nothing to do with him now as he is toxic. But, at one time, he held a prominent position with them.

Currently, it would appear that Kincannon’s job is seeing how many racist, sexist and all-around offensive tweets he can send in a given day and then engaging both his Twitter supporters and opponents. Whether it is saying anyone exposed to Ebola should be killed or insisting that transgender people be put into concentration camps, he will find something to say that will make normal people wretch. In the end, he’ll claim he’s just ‘joking,’ but I think we all know he is truly speaking his mind and giving angry, white, racist conservatives someone to look up to and retweet.

  1. I think at this point the Teabaggers’ only goal is to come up with something more stupid than the last thing a Teabagger has said. One can only lament the fact that Mr. Kincannon’s parents didn’t have taxpayer funded abortion available to them about seven months before he was born.

  2. Kincannon is always finding a new low. I’ve run into him on Twitter a few times and blocked him and his sock puppet accounts more than a few times. This, appallingly enough, is not a particularly new low. He’s pure vicious.

  3. I know a transgender person who served more than 20 years on active duty in the military. Eleven of those years were during the Viet Nam era. That same person volunteered to help at the World Trade Center before the buildings finished falling down. That person also did relief work after hurricane Camille in Mississippi in 1969. That same person has helped to raise two families, has always paid their bills and their taxes. That tea bagger should just shut up and do something for the American people rather than just spew hatred.

  4. I think you missed how horrific the statement is: The government (police) ended Michael Brown’s life, but that is OK because the Brown’s are Democrats, and this is just a late ‘abortion’ by killing their child when he’s 17+ years old. Sick !

    I am sorry, but anyone that supports / defends this type of ‘person’ (ie. Todd Kincannon or other racists / jerks) deserves a very long and painful death.

  5. I dont see a lot of happiness in his future. This is your ” SC non-racist” tea party. Maybe he is trying to create a martyr out of himself when they come for him.

  6. So I guess the only qualification for running for office from the right is that you really hate a lot of people. What a goober. What happened to the good ol’ days when twits like this were relegated to mumbling to themselves at the end of the bar?

  7. The internet brought all of them out from under their sheets. They say see I am not the only loony in the bin

  8. he cannot help he’s an Ahole, so it isn’t so much his tweet(s), it’s the people who retweet him that concern me.

  9. It’s time to due. This is slander and defamation of character. The Brown’s are private, not public citizens. You can’t make statements like that about private citizens with no proof to back up your claim.

  10. All I can say is I hope the saying, “What goes around comes around” is true. The man is pure evil.

  11. I ask myself, regarding Michael Brown’s parents, and others who are targets of this toxic hatred…”How much pain do people have to endure?”

  12. This guy just wants to be Erick Erickson. Filed this story in my folder “Dumb Turds,” because that’s exactly where this guy belongs. Bleagh.

  13. I wonder how long it took him to figure out the
    “75th trimester” assault.
    Prolly the toughest math he’s ever done.

  14. it’s more of a pity, Kincannon’s parents were no prochoice. If they were we would not be saddled with this racist jackass!

  15. Now I understand why there are sooo many crazies running the Country now-a-days,are Repubs.

    The smart and sane Democratic leaning citizens,knew how many children they could raise, nurture, educated and love.

    The repubs. not so much they raise their young by fear, lies, and violence, and strict levels of education, the more the merrier.

    What happened to my parents Republican Party (both born in 1915, and must now be turning in their graves.)?

    My parents also raised 2 sons and one daughter(me, and I was their foster daughter to them, almost 19 years of my life.) All of us became compassionate Dems.

  16. What happened to my parents Republican Party (both born in 1915, and must now be turning in their graves.)?
    They decided with Nixon to become the racist party even though Nixon and Ford wouldn’t dream of going this far. They are now the American Taliban socialist for the rich party.

  17. His hate of black people shows hatred of all minorities!!! Yea, he’d gas jews all over again!!!

  18. I had a son that was 23 years old, 6’4 and weighed 297 pounds and was stout as a bull. He was never violent in his life, in fact, he was bullied all through school. Never caused me a sleepless night. Never fooled with drugs or alcohol, just loved playing computer games with people all over the world when he wasn’t working. He was shot and killed in a break in while I was at work. I said all this to explain my next words. If he was referring to my son that way, I would walk to SC. if I had to and lay waste to his ass. I would buy a .40 cal. and make sure he had at least one under the eye and one in the skull.

  19. I will be really surprised if he is not visited one of these days by someone who has lost a child to the epidemic of cops shooting people but primarily young blacks.

    He should make sure his alarm system is working.

  20. Another example of a RWNJ that has just given up on trying to justify policy or promote thoughtful discourse, instead just settling for saying the most vile and insane things online. Kincannon is a most disgusting bag of excrement who thinks that he should demonize all those whose thoughts don’t match the bile that’s produced by his handful of fevered brain cells.

  21. The hate and lies from the party of hate and lies, the republicans. The GOP, the entire GOP are all the same. They either spew their hate and lies or stand back and do or say nothing when other republicans do, which is also a sick form of hate and lies. By doing nothing to condemn haters and liars, they are haters and liars by default. The entire GOP hate and lie party, the true terrorists of America, the true enemy of all that is good in this country.

  22. It probably took him a while, like since the shooting.

    Kincannon probably repeated the third grade several times, and probably made it to the fourth grade around the same time he reached puberty.
